Bengaluru - The Infosys Board of Directors will meet on August 19 to consider a proposal for buyback of its equity shares of Rs 5 face value, said the global software major.

"The Board of Directors will consider a proposal for buyback of equity shares of the company at its meeting to be held on August 19," said the IT major in a regulatory filing on the BSE.

The outcome of the Board will be notified to the stock exchanges (BSE and NSE) on the same day.
